I just don’t know where to begin, Greg was many things to many people, a miracle mechanic, a best friend, a husband, a father, a brother, a son, a body guard, a shoulder to cry on as long as he was sitting down (I’m short), a wonderful provider. Greg did not know a baby he did not love nor a child he did not spoil. He loved his family with his whole heart. I struggle to find words for this because there are so many. We all knew this day would come but as Ornery and stubborn as he was we just prayed we would have him for much longer. The world just does not seem right without him in it. Greg was/is my best friend, I will always love him and miss him more than I can express.

He was there for me many times . He was a wonderful son in law.
He helped me thru the memorial for my mom, He held on to me and gave me strength. He loved my daughter Andrea with his whole heart. We will miss him but I know he will be healthy and laughing it up with all he has lost.
This will be a good day♥️
